Bears Paper Holder

We did not want clutter, so found a nice space in upper cabinet above sink of 5.0 TA to install our kamenstein paper towel holder. Best part does not require any special backing or supports just a couple 3/4" pointed sheet metal screws.

Nice use of space. Love the lighted cupboard.

Great mod, Tin. Okay, I'm stumped; how'd you drive the screws in upside down and backwards? Thanks.

I don't understand all these mods to a simple ( actually a complex ) paper towel holder. Mine has three parts ( the base structure and two rubber balls ). I attached it under the cabinet above the sink with double sided tape.
If I don't lose my balls, it will continue to work as a paper towel holder should for years and years ( been there 8 years already ).

Ha, ha! Mine's even cheaper than Glenn's. But I have to admit that the Kamenstein paper towel holder is one good-looking and functional unit. If mine were out in public view, that would be the one for me.

Let's hope you hold on to them.

Mine isn't "modded". Works perfect the way it came.

Hi Zardoz, I just clamped it and used a small Makita screw gun with #8 x 3/4" pointed sheet metal screws. Just reached in there and screwed it in, yes it is awkward just keep to the side just in case the screw slips, safety glasses would not hurt.

Had the same one in my 19', Glenn. Great in a stable environment but the first time I had to re-roll an entire roll back onto the tube after a short trip, I started looking for alternatives.
